New Linkin Park album, “A Thousand Suns”, out 14/9 [Update!]

It's finally official, Linkin Park's new album is called "A Thousand Suns", and it will be released on September 14th, 2010. The new single is called "The Catalyst", it will be released on August 2nd. This is exciting news for us Linkin Park fans! We were given the two names a few weeks ago in the LP puzzles, and many had already guessed that it was the name of the single and the new album. I think the album name is awesome, I really hoped that it would be the final name of the album.

This is not all the news we got. Linkin Park will have a contest where we fans will get the opportunity to remix the new single, "The Catalyst", and one lucky winner will have their remix on the "A Thousand Suns" album. I will of course enter the contest, because I love to remix Linkin Park music, it's one of my biggest interests. The contest will begin on July 9th. I don't know if they will include the vocal stems, or just the music. I'm really excited right now, and I think many other Linkin Park fans are too.

You can read the entire post from Mike, below. And as always stay tuned for more exciting news in the coming weeks!


No puzzles or hidden messages with this one. We’re excited to finally announce that our new album, A THOUSAND SUNS, will be released on September 14th.

The lead single for the album is called “The Catalyst.” It will be released on August 2nd.

Beginning tomorrow, July 9th, we’re teaming up with MySpace for “Linkin Park, Featuring You,” a contest which gives you the one-of-a-kind opportunity to be on our new album. We’ll be giving you some audio from “The Catalyst,” and you get to take it from there; you can remix the parts, write something over them, or mute stuff and write something totally new. We may choose a remix of the song, and put it on the album…or, we may choose an amazing keyboardist, string quartet, guitarist, percussion group, or other musician, and invite them into the studio to play on one of our songs. No matter what instrument you play, you can win. We’re open to anything good. All we ask is that you include any audible portion of any one of our stems in your submission.

Once you submit, the community (that’s you) will vote, and the most popular stuff will rise to the top. Then, my bandmates and I will comb through the submissions, choose one winner, and they will be included on our album, A THOUSAND SUNS. Check out for contest details.

I think I’ve said enough for now. Thanks for your continued support. We’ve got more announcements coming, so keep checking for updates.
